Biography

Delakota were an English indie dance band from the late 1990s. The band mixed elements of Baggy, retro rock music, indie pop and modern dance music to produce a sound which was often compared to Primal Scream.[citation needed]

The band were formed by ex members of the Senseless Things, Cass Browne and Morgan Nicholls with Des Murphy (ex-Wasteland, Los Bastardos and Genius Freak) in 1997. The band's first product was a white label demo single, "C'mon Cincinnati". A remix for David Holmes and their next single "The Rock" bought them to the attention of the British music press. The band were also noted for an unusual gig in a cave and for an appearance on BBC Two's Newsnight.

The band played some support slots including a tour with Embrace, and a place on the NME new bands tour in 1998. Their debut album, One Love, was released in 1998 to generally positive reviews. After the release of the album the band went quiet and have not been heard from since, save for one further single, "Got It Like That". It is presumed that the band has split up. As of 2004 Nicholls was playing keyboards in The Streets and Browne was playing drums for Gorillaz.
